As the error says, you need to add a space between the names. But even more important is that variable names should not be enclosed in quotes. Extra characters you add (like the space) will have quotes.

Since you are using Template literals, then you should add --> ${ } to perform substitutions

let firstName = 'Raissa';
let lastName = 'Gomes';
let role = 'developer';
let msg = `${firstName} ${lastName}: ${role}`;
